For me there was a lovely pack of their Fine Point Graph’Peps. With 0.4mm tips they are perfect for colouring in those super detailed pages of my colouring books, they are also fabulous for drawing, sketching and really enjoyable to write with which I wasn’t expecting. They have a smooth soft touch coating making them delightful to hold and the triangular shape keeps them comfortable and easy to control with precision, on top of stopping them from rolling. With colours from black, through red to some vivid greens it is the perfect little set for anyone and anything. These ticked off a lot of my stationery fan girl wants, the simple yet bright design, the practicality of the pack the come in and of course the actual quality of the ink and ease of use.

The boy was lucky enough to get a pack of the Color’Peps Gel and the Color’Peps PlastiClean pens and crayons to play with.

We’ve used the Color’Peps Gel before, they are hard to describe, somewhere between and crayon and a paint stick, in a plastic casing that is easy to hold and nice and chunky the colours can be wound up or down as required, which is very handy if you have a child who insists on eating his crayons, at least you know he won’t get much! They give an easy and smooth colour which gives great coverage, as an adult I actually find them very satisfying to use and as a toddler the boy just finds them easy. I love that you can also use them with a paintbrush, simply colour in the section you want then use a wet paintbrush over the top to give a water colour effect, painting with none of the mess. Big tick on that front.

The Color’Peps PlastiClean are crayons but with a difference, they are triangular for easy grip, something that was actually recommended to us an age ago by a health visitor, they can be sharpened in a standard pencil sharpener so they can be used again and again. They have a flattened end for colouring large areas and giving a different finish, it also means they aren’t going to be rolling off anywhere. Finally the smooth plastic like finish to them means no grubby hands and a lack of grubby hands means a cleaner house, woop, woop. With loads of fab colours these have been a great hit.
